PORTLAND, MAINE (May 5, 2010) – Nemo Publishing has released its fifth action figure variant in the Commander X collection. The Commander X Archer Knight is a limited edition, Mego-style, eight-inch collectible action figure available for sale exclusively at

Commander X is an integral character in Jay Piscopo’s all-ages graphic novel series, The Undersea Adventures of Capt’n Eli. Commander X is an amnesiac who has been sent from the future to save the earth from inevitable destruction. He is a based on the Depression-era heroes of the comic book and movie serials of the 1930s.
